To ensure JK-Grade 8 student safety online, and to make a project with 5,000,000 students even possible, this project is open to all elementary teachers working in official educational systems in Canada from JK to Grade 8.
This includes Public, Catholic, Separate, French, Independent, Private, Federal, and First Nation Reserve Schools, as well as Alternative Education programs such as hospital education programs and libraries. Official and/or verifiable education email addresses are required to participate in the project.

HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS:
We’ve been receiving numerous inquiries from high school teachers interested in knowing if they can participate in this project as well, or if there is a project like this available for high school students. Strictly speaking, the answer is: not that we’re aware of.
One option for your high school students is to work with younger students in a feeder school nearby. Their leadership and one-on-one assistance in the technical aspects of content creation would be very valuable to so many elementary children — and their teachers!
The Digital Human Library is available to connect and serve Canadian teachers from JK-12. So another option for high school classes would be to use the “dHL” to connect with other teachers, and create your own project to suit your students’ interests and needs.
